Bad Hair? Don’t Care

One of my girlfriends was hopping on the train to go to a date straight from hanging out with me outside on the hottest, most humid NYC day. It was their second date and at his house. There’s probably going to be some action, so take a shower first, right? He’s also 5 years younger.Continue reading “Bad Hair? Don’t Care”

Define Success

I’m proud to say that I don’t owe anyone for my personal success in life. My parents financed my education and raised me with cultural exposure, and I’m grateful for that.

Overheard in The Office

“We need to water down the hed” [as in headline, when talking about Duggars having sex] “I mean there needs to be more of a story here.

Quirky

I think when you embrace your quirks and really own them, you come into your own. I’ve recently spent time with some younger dolls who were always a bit socially awkward and not fully embracing the qualities that they had to bring to the table.
